ABC Wednesday - P is for Placemats

These placemats and the accompanying coasters were designed by the Irish artist, Thomas Joseph. Their bright colours, comfortable animals and wordplay appealed to me. I tried to persuade myself that I bought them to entertain our grandchildren but in truth the biggest child to appreciate them was me!
Some of the coasters repeat the illustrations on the placemats. The two below are different.
Thanks go to Denise Nesbitt and her merry band for their hard work in organising and hosting this meme. To see more Ps - and perhaps participate - please click here.

  1. I love these. The humor and stylistic art work is terrific. I don't blame you for getting them for your "grandkids" (:0)

  8. These placemats really are fun! My husband makes spindles and other tools for hand spinners so is interested in all things "sheep." He'd get a kick out of these. :)

  12. Oh, I love them! And I can tell you right now that if I ate a meal at your house, I'd be fighting to use the one with horses on. It would take me right back to my childhood! LOL!
